General / Re: Create AM to ES and ES to AM as menu options

Hey, I was just poking around inside my Pi looking for a mame config and I think i stumbled across the thing you wanted:

In the directory /home/pi/RetroPie/retropiemenu/

there is a file called "Switch To Attract"

There's also an icon file for the menu.

Likewise in /home/pi/.attract/Attract Mode Setup/  there is a file called "Launch Emulation Station to Configure" and an icon in the wheels subdirectory for that.

I'm not sure if there's a config file or something somewhere you have to add these scripts to to get them to show up, or if just putting them in there is enough.  I'll drop my files here as attachments and you can try it out.

I don't know how to do it myself, but I know what you want is possible, because the image I'm using has those options added in.   It's the pdark image, which I believe is based off of motionblue.  So you might want to check out the motion blue docs.

I have a menu option under Attract Mode that reboots me into emulationstation and one in emulationstation that reboots me into attract mode.
General / Joystick Identification switches after every restart
« Last post by jsupreme23 on Yesterday at 02:07:11 PM »
Hey Guys!! Have a weird issue that I can't seem to figure out. I am using a zero delay encoder for awhile now and everything functioned normally until yesterday.  Whenever I shut down the pie and turn it back on, the identity of the controller changes, which is forcing me to remap my controls all over again. The encoder will change from joy0 to joy1 to joy2 etc... after every reboot (after 10 reboots the joystick is labeled as joy10). I took a look at the attract.cfg file and can see all the entries for the controller listed. I even tried removing all entries  for the controller in attract.cfg but that didn't solve the issue. Can anyone shed some light into what I am currently dealing with?

I have a few thoughts -

First, have a look at the wiki entry -

then -

I'd start by ensuring that catver.ini is available

cd /
sudo find / -name catver.ini

General / Bluetooth Keyboard not usable in menu
« Last post by factoid on October 22, 2017, 11:46:12 PM »
I have a small bluetooth keyboard that is paired directly to my Pi3, not using any sort of bluetooth dongle.  In retrospect I wish I had gotten one that was RF and used a dedicated pre-paired dongle because those are just USB keyboards as far as the hardware it's connected to is concerned.

I have attract mode set up and working pretty much how I want it now.  It's set up to be pretty much 100% operated with a 360 wireless controller, and that works no problem.  But they keyboard simply isn't recognized within the attractmode menu at all.

Nothing I do seems to register a key press. 

Up, Down, Left and Right are all configured in controls as defaults, but the arrow keys on my keyboard do nothing.

If I use my controller to map new controls, no button on my keyboard registers as having been pressed, so it just sits there waiting for me to press a button, as if I hadn't done anything at all.

But as soon as I go into something like retroarch, MAME, the retropie setup menu, my keyboard works just fine there.  I can type, I can map keys in retroarch, etc.  Super weird.

Anyone know how I can get it to work in AttractMode?

I'm going to be cloning this setup for use in a cabinet where the controls are an x-arcade tankstick, which emulates keyboard presses, so I'll need the menu to operate via keyboard eventually.

Otherwise I'm really digging attract mode. The wheels and video snaps, along with the customizeable filters solve the problems inherent with having thousands of ROMs on a system.  You can actually navigate it and find something to play this way.

EDIT:  I just plugged in a wired keyboard and that didn't work at first, but then I rebooted and it was detected and I could use the wired keyboard within attract-mode. So I guess that might imply that I won't have a problem when I get to using a tankstick because that will behave like a wired keyboard.  Still, I'd like to get it working, so if anyone has suggestions on getting a bluetooth keyboard working please let me know.
